A method of preparing fast meatballs with broccoli in bechamel sauce
Put the chilled minced meat in a bowl, add a large onion grated on a coarse grater. The onion gives juiciness, to avoid tears, you can chop it in a blender.
We also rub the raw potatoes finely. Instead of potatoes, you can add zucchini or pumpkin, it will also turn out tasty and juicy.
Pour dried parsley or any dry seasoning for meat in a bowl with minced meat, salt to taste.
Thoroughly knead the stuffing, usually this is done with your hands, because the stuffing is similar to dough.
If you are cooking this dish from a whole piece of meat, then simply grind all the ingredients in a blender until smooth.
Wet palms with cold water, sculpt small round cutlets. Of the specified number of products I get 11-12 pieces.
In a deep frying pan with non-stick coating, pour 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil for frying, heat the oil. Put the patties in a pan, quickly fry on both sides until golden brown.
Heat 2 liters of water to a boil, salt. Throw the broccoli into boiling water, blanch for 3 minutes, throw it in a colander.
When the water drains, spread the cabbage inflorescences between the patties.
We mix milk with wheat flour, mix thoroughly so that there are no lumps of flour, salt, season with grated nutmeg. If you want to make bechamel sauce for quick meat patties with a slight sour taste, then you can replace milk with low-fat sour cream, diluting it with water.
Put a tablespoon of butter in a frying pan, when it melts, carefully pour the sauce. Add a chili pepper pod if desired.
On a moderate fire, bring to a boil, close the lid and cook the meatballs on a quiet fire for 7-10 minutes.
This time is enough - the cutlets will be juicy and tender, and the cabbage will retain its bright green color.
